Quick Search

IT Glue now gives you the opportunity to search for your organizations, passwords, etc. all without having to leave what you're working on.  With a search bar at the top of every screen, you can find information in your account from anywhere. Learn the ins and outs of how to search in IT Glue - one of our core features!

Note that the global shortcuts below will not work when the focus is on a data-entry field or you are editing a document.

Button and keyboard shortcuts 

To launch Quick Search, press the '/' or click the Quick Search button on any page in IT Glue from any screen and a pop-over search field will open. When you are in an organization, search defaults to the current organization. Type the name of an asset (configuration, contact, password, etc.) or organization, and choose from the list of results.

Using the IT Glue Quick Search feature, you can now see a preview of  all results returned without having to navigate to the specific record. Previews are snapshots of results that pop up on the right side of the results, as shown below.

This feature currently lets you preview documents, configurations, passwords, locations, contacts, and flexible assets in the IT Glue web app only, but will be available for other asset types. 

To use this feature, press a quick search shortcut (e.g. "Q") and search for one of the asset types listed above. Depending on where you hover your mouse, you can scroll each panel independently. In addition to previewing a result, you can also show or copy a password without having to click on it.
